14 May Is DVC Resale Legit?
You’ve heard of Disney Vacation Club. The Disney timeshare is popular and beloved by many who enjoy vacationing at Disney resort hotels every year. The flexibility of DVC even allows Members to bank, or postpone the use of, points so they can enjoy longer stays or bigger accomodations every other year if they choose. There are so many possibilities with the fifteen current Disney Vacation Club Resorts. However, despite your intrigue, the price of Disney Vacation Club may have you crunching numbers. It’s a big financial commitment but don’t let that deter you. There are options to consider with DVC resale.
Is DVC Resale Legit?
Disney Vacation Club has been coined as a best kept secret. That secret has a secret and it’s DVC resale. DVC resale refers to contracts being sold by someone other than Disney. This basically means buying a contract from a DVC Member. There’s an entire industry dedicated to the reselling of Disney Vacation Club contracts. It works nearly the same, minus some Member extras, but just wait until you hear how much less expensive it is than buying from Disney directly.
It’s possible to save thousands of dollars buying resale instead of direct from Disney Vacation Club. You can compare the savings in our DVC direct prices vs resale article that goes over average prices from early 2022. For a quick reference, Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is $245 per point when buying direct from Disney as of April 2022. Recently, this property has been around $157 per point on the resale market. If you buy a 175 point contract at that resale rate, that will save you around $15,400!
